Better Regex Options Builder

Hi All,

Recently I came across a query and thing UiPath must improve the Regex tool a bit!!!

So my suggestion is as follow:

While creating regex we usually go to multiple website just to build our regex expression, such as OR

It would be great if we don’t need to go to any other tool and just simply rely on UiPath!!!

Just a though, appreciate your input on the same :slight_smile:

I think that’s a fantastic idea Shubham, especially with how many RegEx questions we come across in the forums.

Maybe they could add a small module in the initial UiPath training sessions as well!

Something similar to the Explanation module on would also be amazing.


Hello guys @Shubham_Varshney @chenderson

The ideas both of you guys have mentioned are really great. I agree on that too… Regex is a area where many are not familiar with. So along with the module, a training video would be a great addition for all the community members… :grinning::grinning::grinning:


It’s great idea man.i hope Uipath should be included.


Hi @Shubham_Varshney

We already have in-built Regex tool :smiley:
See here:

Or do you mean to improve that tool? If yes, then how? :slight_smile:


hi @loginerror

We are seeing a lot of queries in the forums on Regex recently and I agree with @chenderson suggestion that we must have a tutorial in the Academy on Regex and a bit of improvement in the tool:

  1. A quick reference on how things work such as /w for word and so on!!!
  2. A bit more info I think would be through the ideal sites like

Hope this helps on my query :slight_smile:

I believe there is a piece on the Regex Builder on Academy as part of the 2019.4 Updates course:

I believe it goes over the basic functionality :slight_smile:


Ahhh I didn’t knew the updated one, Please excuse me if wrong!!!
A bit more detailed one course would surely help a lot of people :slight_smile:
